Cannes 2011 Official Selection!

The Cannes Film Festival selection has been announced slightly earlier than usual, and in full as opposed to the previous year where the festival struggled to fill its slots until the very last minute.

I shall be discussing it in more details and several posts over the week end, but glancing over it, the usual suspects are in, Pedro Almodovar, Lars Von Trier, the Dardenne brothers, Aki Kaurismaki, there is the welcome addition of Takeshi Miike (Audition, 13 assassins) and Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Valhalla rising), a few regrettable omission (Wong Kar Wai, Andrea Arnold whose Wuthering Heights seemed a safe bet), and the best news of all, the inclusion of The tree of life by Terrence Malick, which is only about two years late!

More (a lot more in fact) about the festival to follow.
